- Ecuador and LATAM Airlines Group shine at the World Travel Awards
The 20th World Travel Awards took place on 20 July and Lotus UK’s Latin American clients had a very successful night.
Ecuador’s vibrant and historic capital of Quito proved to be one of the biggest stars by taking the title of “South America’s Leading Destination”. Quito’s historic centre was one of UNESCO’s first ever World Heritage Sites, declared in 1978. Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands also snapped up the titles of “Leading Green Hotel” with Finch Bay Hotel and “South America’s Leading Resort” with the Arasha Tropical Forest Resort & Spa.
In addition to this, LAN Airlines, part of LATAM Airlines Group, was crowned “Leading Airline in South America” for the second consecutive year, taking into account the airline’s dedication to leadership, the implementation of a clear corporate vision, consistency in operations and attentive customer service. Other factors taken into consideration were excellent food service, comfortable cabins and Business Class service, on board technology and entertainment, VIP lounges, and the on-time arrivals and departures record.
- Liguria retains position of most Blue Flag beaches in Italy for 2013 - 4th year in a row
The region of Liguria in north-west Italy, otherwise known as the ‘Italian Riviera’, has the most Blue Flag beaches of any region in Italy, following two new entries for 2013. The crescent shaped region between the French Riviera and Tuscany now has 20 Blue Flag Beaches, allowing it to retain its title of having the most Blue Flag beaches in Italy for the fourth year in a row. Holding this position for four years highlights Liguria’s incredible beach offering. The position is particularly impressive considering that the region has a relatively small length of coastline (nearly 200 miles) compared to other regions of Italy. Blue Flag beaches range from Finale Ligure in the west, which is Liguria’s longest beach, to Lerici Beach in east Liguria, with its stunning scenery and crystal clear waters.
